So far, so good until you try it on and your anatomy turns against you. Sometimes, it really just is a matter of having larger labia, other times, it’s due to the swimsuit. Either way, you’re facing down cameltoe, which we’re not going to call “dreaded” as per usual, as it’s simply a natural part of life that most women will face at one time or another and absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Cameltoe can appear due to labia size or swimwear design. No matter what the cause, a few anti-cameltoe strategies can be employed, such as sewing in a liner, adding padding, shopping for your size/body type, and even just buying another swimsuit if all else fails. For now, we’re going to go on a deep-dive on the matter of labia and how they fit into swimsuits, offering up a few tricks for hiding them away along the way, such as these nine secrets for hiding camel toe in a swimsuit but a little more standard here – enjoy! How to Hide lips in a Swimsuit Hiding Big Labias in a Swimsuit Ridding your pool or seaside trips of cameltoe is often a simple matter of smoothing the area over in one way or another. For that, we suggest … Bikini Bottom Liner Most bikini bottoms will already come with a liner. This liner is a thin piece of material that’s sewn to the inside of your bikini bottom. To test if your bikini features this anti-camel toe attribute, simply take both of your hands and pinch either side of your bikini. If the material separates into two sheets of material – that’s a liner. If this separation does not occur, you may want to look into adding your own lining. For this, you’ll need to source a bikini liner (always available online) and make the most of your DIY skills. Some cutting and sewing will be involved, but the result almost always works to make swimsuit cameltoe a thing of the past. DIY Lining If you think you might need something a little more “heavy lifting” than a liner, this genius DIY anti-lips strategy could do just the trick! It involves taking the padding from a normal bra, sports bra, or bathing suit top. Once you’ve sourced one of these soft inserts, the next step is to cut it into the shape of the bottom of your swimsuit – the area where your labia sits. Inserted the piece directly into the slip that exists on most bathing suit bottoms and underwear. The padding will discreetly hide the appearance of any camel toe. Size it Right Sometimes, the only cameltoe culprit is our swimsuit or bikini bottoms hugging a little too tightly. There are some signs to check for to discern if your swimsuit is too small. If the fit is too snug, the material of your swimsuit will tend to “ride up,” creating the line or crevice that’s symbolic of cameltoe. If you feel this may be the case for you, it’s best to take a look at a swimsuit sizing guide or swimsuit measuring chart.

Interestingly, some swimsuit designs fit better on some body types than others, meaning ridding yourself of cameltoe blues could be a matter of learning how to swimsuit shop for your body type. Swimsuit Cover-ups Since it’s highly unlikely anyone will be able to spot cameltoe underwater, sometimes you just have to worry about covering it on land. For that, we have beautiful sarongs and kaftans that can be wrapped around to cover the area, removed with ease, and just so happen to be incredibly stylish and right on trend. There’s such a huge collection of gorgeous garments to wear over your swimsuit that you can try on neverending variations of styles and combinations, keeping your by-the-beach look fresh and right-on-trend always (while covering over your camel toe, of course.) Style it Right Across all garments, from jeans to cargo shorts and all the way to swimwear, dark colors are well-known and much-loved for being able to hide cameltoe. The darker shades make the shadows associated with camel toe fade away, meaning no indentation or dip can be perceived. At the same time, one-piece swimsuits with “busy” top halves can draw the eye away from the area. Going for a two-tone bikini (with the lighter color on top) can also achieve the same “illusion” effect. Conclusion: Hiding Cameltoe in Swimwear Wearing a swimsuit can be daunting at the best of times, meaning that when that cameltoe rears its head – it can seem an awful lot more significant than usual. We say there’s no point in stressing over it; instead, accept it for what it is and use one of the strategies above to ensure it’s hidden away so that you can feel cool, calm, collected, and like your most confident self while wearing your swimsuit – just as you deserve to feel!
